Commercial Aerospace MRO Market in the United States, 2019

Commercial Aerospace MRO Market in the United States, 2019

This analysis will evaluate the commercial aircraft fleet and MRO market in the United States in 2018. The market segmentation is based on multiple criteria including airlines, airframe and engine OEMs, aircraft types, aircraft models, modifications, as well as the type of MRO maintenance. This research highlights market trends along with technology megatrends and growth opportunity areas. The United States drives the largest demand for MRO spending at both the North American and global levels. However, in recent years, the Asia-Pacific region has surpassed North America to reach the top spot in terms of MRO spending. This research study investigates the changing dynamics of the commercial aircraft fleet, the workforce that maintains the aircraft, and aircraft components in the aftermarket. A comparative analysis on how the United States stacks up against other countries in the world in terms of MRO market size is included along with overall regional comparisons.

This study focuses further on the trends in the commercial aircraft MRO market in the United States; current commercial aircraft MRO spending in the country by aircraft manufacturer, airline operator, and MRO segment; and also presents a commercial MRO country benchmarking index for North America (MRO market size and fleet size). Finally, it offers a detailed discussion on the US commercial MRO market outlook, including technology megatrends in aviation MRO, use cases to illustrate the trends, and the technology maturity curve of US-based MRO service providers. The study also discusses the profiles of key commercial MRO service providers.
